Pizza in U.Square?

nokitsch Nov 21, 2007 07:35 AM

I would like to buy a couple of pies for my students for the final class. What's good around 5th Ave/14th st? I wouldn't want to schlep as far as Joe's on Bleecker, for example. TIA.

    There's a Patsy's Pizza around there, but I can't think of the exact street. Check www.menupages.com

      Patsy's is on University near 11th street. Have not been there even though i live a few blocks away. Let us know how it is.

        Forgot to mention the excellent Piola, on 12th street near Broadway. Not the typical corner pizza shop but a nice all around italian restaurant with many assorted thin crust pizzas.

        Due Amici on 14th just west of Fifth does a good job. You'll also find a Brick Oven and a Cheesteak Factory on the corner of 14th and Sixth.

          This maybe the winner - thanks. Beau711 is right - I am definitely not going to order anything very expensive, but I wouldn't want the soggy, thick, oily, bland crap that 95% of NYC pizzerias offer either.

            Pizza dead zone until you get to 1st avenue then you get 3 winners: Una pizza Napoletana on 12th street, Luzzo's on 1st ave between 12th and 13th and Vinny Vincenz on 1st between 13th and 14th. Avenue A between 13th and 14th you also have Muzzarella.

              Una pizza Napoletana is ridiculously expensive for an individual pie for one ($21) If the original poster has six students that would be $126 plus tax plus delivery.

              I would recommend Stromboli's on 12th Street & University Place.
